FLOWVERS release new single, Flowers
A slow burner that builds up to an epic crescendo, ‘Flowers‘, the new single from Portsmouth Indie Band, FLOWVERS, weaves strands of indie, rock, and post-punk to create a colossal four minutes much akin to the sound of Talking Heads meeting Kings Of Leon in their more intricate moments.
“‘Flowers’ combines all elements of FLOWVERS. past, present, and future. Weaving between guitar subtilty and sudden impact-wall of sound, with our intention being to create our most interesting and progressive track to date. The reoccurring critique of ‘not liking the way the flowers are going/ things are going’ only solidifies the emotions found in the previous single ‘Far Away’.”FLOWVERS
Whilst many bands are still finding their feet in a post-pandemic music industry landscape, FLOWVERS have taken it in their stride, using lockdown to develop their sound, which has since presented them with some fruitful opportunities. Earlier this year the Portsmouth band appeared on Scruff Of The Neck TV onTwitch-as part of a mammoth weekender celebrating new bands from up and down the country. This summer they also played the iconic Isle Of Wight Festival, appearing on the This Feeling stage, sold out shows on a headline tour around the UK, had their music played on Soccer AM, and appeared in the studio at talkSPORT Radio for an interview.
FLOWVERS’ growing hook-laden sound has seen them become regulars on BBC Introducing in the Solent as well as garnering support across the board on music blogs. They’ve amassed over one million streams on Spotify after featuring on their New Music Friday and Hot New Bands playlists, whilst live they have played shows with the likes of Swim Deep, JAWS, Black Honey, Another Sky and Coach Party.
With a sound that is blossoming with each release, the sky appears to be the limit for FLOWVERS. We got a chance to interview the band in Manchester for the final show of their UK tour last month, here.
